I have been in the mortgage business for the past 12 years and with Guaranteed Rate for the past 10 years. Before that I was in the restaurant industry and just needed a change. I love all aspects of the real estate industry with helping people go from renting a home to buying their first home. I like working with all my past clients that I've had for 10 years, and watching them go from their first home as a condo to the next home as a single family house and hearing about their family growing and moving on. I graduated Texas State University in 1996 with a degree in Broadcast Journalism. I believe that this degree has helped me communicate more with my clients and also people in general. I have lived in Roscoe Village for the past 15 years with my wife Amy and have a four year old son to keep me moving. My hometown is Houston, but have been in Chicago for the past 20 years and enjoy the city very much. You can't beat Chicago as a sports town and something to do every day, even in the winter.
